How late (if at all) into the next year (2001) can contributions be made for the previous year (2000)?

You can make your Roth IRA contributions as late as the tax filing deadline for that tax year.

That means you can make your Tax Year 2000 Roth IRA contributions as late as April 16, 2001. (April 15 is a Sunday so the deadline for filing taxes and Roth IRA contributions are the next business day.) The deadline is not extended by filing for an extension for filing one's income tax returns.

Since there is nothing on the tax forms for Roth IRA contributions, you can even contribute after you had filed your returns--just as long as you don't go past the deadline.
